Graceful reverence for truth
Daphne Cohn’s conversations with artists about how they do “that thing they must do” are more than a permission slip to pursue the heart’s calling—they are a bridge to that promised land. In body, mind and spirit, I feel the artful way she listens, asks questions, and draws wisdom from the depths transport my awareness to that place where creation lives in us. I look forward to every episode of this podcast and recommend it with all my heart.
Daphne's podcast are true gifts. Her voice is so peaceful and calm and she asked the most insightful questions. Hearing from other creatives helps me to see that I'm not alone. I've learned so much and it's helping me find my own story. I have so much gratitude for Daphne and her work. Many thanks!
